Answers :

It sounds like depleted batteries. If you've replaced the batteries, then you may want to pursue warranty replacement. A high Mega-Pixel camera like yours will drain batteries quickly.

Hi, I've had my Nikon D40x now for about two months, brand new etc. I was sat by the pool today and someone dived in, sending a few splashes onto me and the camera, hardly enough to damage it at all, and i dried it straight away. But still, i tried to turn the camera on and it would not, no sign of life or anything. So i put it into the hot water cupboard overnight, and still nothing?? Could anyone suggest anything, please?? :S Thanks, Laurie.

I have a Kodak EasyShare z710 that will not format a memory card. I started with an older one i had and figured that it was the card. So i recently bought a brand new 2GB SD card for it. It tells me that it needs to be formated and i follow the steps, but then it just goes back to the previous screen. I dont have a card reader on my computer, but do have the cables and connect it to my computer that way. Is there a way to get the camera itself to go ahead and format it? Or a way to do it fro

Zoom Error Just bought an Olympus SP550 Ultra Zoom for my daughter. In less than 24 hours the cam developed a problem. When she turns it on, the zoom lens goes part way out, a message "zoom error" shows on the screen, and it powers itself off. We thought it might just be the batteries, but new ones didn't help.

790SW Problems You mentioned you are on your third one. So do you just keep sending them back to Olympus with the receipt and they keep sending you new ones? Is the battery charger supposed to blink when it is charging? I was snorkeling with mine when it seized up and wouldn't work anymore. I was turning it on and off so that I could save battery power. I guess something got stuck in there. Then it would let me view pix, but not take pix. Then it said the battery cover was open, when it wasn't.
